    I cloned the form at https://www.jotformpro.com/form/70230508893961

    This are a few thing I added to the form to make it work the way its working now

    1. Added "Form Calculation wizard", performed calculation and set it to hidden




    2. Using the Paypal Integration wizard, Selected the Payment Type to "User Defined Amount" and Set Get Price From field to "calculation" from the drop down
